Showdown or slowdown? The UN and peacebuilding in 2015

In her FriEnt essay on “Peacebuilding at the UN over the last ten years”, Vanessa Wyeth stated in 2011 that “(i)f the last decade has proved anything, it is that, however flawed, the UN has a unique legitimacy and indispensible role to play in peacebuilding”.

At that time, however, the discussion about peacebuilding was on the political backburner and practical interest among peacebuilders outside the UN in coordinating and cooperating with the UN in peacebuilding appeared to be rather limited. This fall might be different, both politically and operationally. This blog post fleshes out some reasons why this might be the case.

Welcome to the FriEnt PBF Voices Blog

 

The PBF Voices Blog is not solely shaped by us, the FriEnt team, it shall rather provide a space for conference speakers, participants and other interested persons to share ideas and insights on the future of peacebuilding policy and practice.

All posts relate to the multifaceted theme of the conference in its widest sense. Every article reflects the author’s personal opinion and captures his or her unique style.

Reflections from the FriEnt PBF 2018


Connect-reflect-create was the motto of the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2018. In the aftermath of the conference we are asking some of the participants to reflect on key takeaways from the FriEnt PBF, to share their views on the changing landscape for peacebuilding and to look ahead: How should peacebuilding look like in 2030? Our aim is to learn from different perspectives: how to accelerate innovation in the peacebuilding field and how to strengthen our collective impact. You can find all videos and blog posts here.
